High Quality Best Price l-ornithine important precursor needed to
manufacture Citrulline, Proline and Glutamic Acid.
L-Ornithine is one of the products of the action of the enzyme
arginase on L-arginine, creating urea. Therefore, ornithine is a
central part of the urea cycle, which allows for the disposal of
excess nitrogen. Ornithine is recycled and, in a manner, is a
catalyst. First, ammonia is converted into carbamoyl phosphate
(phosphate-CONH2), which creates one half of urea. Ornithine is
converted into a urea derivative at the δ (terminal) nitrogen by
carbamoyl phosphate. Another nitrogen is added from aspartate,
producing the denitrogenated fumarate, and the resulting arginine
(a guanidinium compound) is hydrolysed back to ornithine, producing
urea. The nitrogens of urea come from the ammonia and aspartate,
and the nitrogen in ornithine

Food grade: As a flavouring agent, L-Ornithine is added into foods.
Restore body fatigue, promote growth and development.
Pharmaceutical grade: As medicine intermediates, L-Ornithine is a
raw material of compound amino acids and peptides synthetic, and
has effect on the treatment of cirrhosis, disease recovery and
enhance physical ability.
Functions and Usage:
1.L-Ornithine is a non-essential amino acid. It is manufactured in
the body utilizing L-Arginine which is an important precursor
needed to manufacture Citrulline, Proline and Glutamic Acid.
2.L-Ornithine is one of the growth hormone releasers used to
increase lean muscle mass while decreasing body fat.
3.Another important function is its use in detoxifying cells from
harmful ammonia buildup.
